Myocardial perfusion SPECT often points towards other non-coronary etiologies of chest pain. Here, we report one such insidious condition.
A 54-year-old male with a history of ascending aortic aneurysm and a history of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), at an outlying facility 5-years ago, was admitted with chest pain. The patient has an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), placed at the outlying facility 5 years ago for secondary prevention, though a work-up for SCA at that time was unremarkable—reportedly negative coronary angiogram. Per patient, a cardiac magnetic resonance was not performed prior to ICD implantation.
